I got this cigar from Brian the Lion of the Stogie Show. He was generous enough to let me into his personal stash of cigars that he brought back from his IPCPR Vegas trip.

When Brian and I were first chatting we thought this was a new cigar from Pete Johnson which it is not. The name very similar to the Tatuaje La Verite and the Veritas cigar band colors are very similar to La Verite cigar band colors. However after a little research we got it all cleared up and found out it’s a new cigar company who’s cigars are manufactured by Blue Mountain Cigars out of Miami.

So my whole Los Blancos introduction came from the Los Blancos Cigars President, Cesar Blanco. The story begins just a few weeks ago when earlier in the night myself and Ben were smoking Anejos down in Ybor City at King Corona. During our time at King Corona we had been chatting about the Alec Bradley Vice Press and wanted to go pick one up. So we finished our cigars and headed strait to a shop where we knew they had them. Arriving at SoHo Cigars we noticed Scott the owner of SoHo Cigars sit back and another guy popped up and started helping us out. We later found the guy who popped up was Cesar Blanco. Apparently according to Scott they were having an impromptu event that hadn’t even been announced. Cesar asked some great questions about our tastes and pointed Ben at the Los Blancos Criollo while I picked up the Los Blancos Nine Robusto. By the way I also picked up the Vice Press.
